Johannes Victor LINDHORST: Architect
The architect of the building was one RICHTER, it seems, who designed Palace Buildings from the Netherlands; Donaldson and Lindhorst seem to have been appointed architects in residence.
The Palace Building was noted for the towers and was known as the Rand Eiffel Tower. The iron weather-vane which surmounted the lesser tower is preserved in the Africana Museum, Johannesburg.
